Default transferring XP installation

my Laptop= fujitsu p1120 (no cd-rom, no floppy, no usb bootability, nothing at all.)

i put the hard drive onto a spare desktop, installed XP sp3 performance edition. installed NO drivers.

put it back in the laptop, laptop is just blank black screen instead of loading the OS. its not a problem, cuz i know i can get it working somehow, but how?

if i put it back in the desktop it'll run fine. i was gonna do sysprep but theres no sysprep for SP3 and there was nothing included on the Performance Edition disc.

what can i do?

I don't think it's possible. Wether you know it or not, there are always some drivers installed, and unless you find a way that I have not, it's not easy to "transfer" the install. If the chipsets are radically different, the odds are slim to none.
